Cozen O'Connor and Wolf Block announced late Tuesday they would not continue their preliminary merger talks. "As with many merger discussions between major firms, business and structural differences made completing a transaction too difficult," the firms said in their joint statement. Said Cozen O'Connor Chairman Stephen A. Cozen in an interview, "it wasn't a question of not trying." The combined firm would have had more than 800 attorneys.
